New Emergency Information Placards

By Bob Colichio

As of October 31, 2008 all of the old yellow safety placards have been changed to the new Emergency Information Placards (pictured right).

The old green boards and the yellow safety placards have been evolving over the years into safety information for occupants and that was not the original intent.

The intent of the new placards is to give safety information to non-occupants during non-working hours (ie; fire/rescue, security or Plant Engineering) in case of emergency.

These placards are updated on an annual basis, normally following your Experimental Safety Review meetings, but, if you have a change in the following, please inform myself or Ann Emrick to make changes to your placard:

  • Phone number change
  • Change in personnel listed on the current placard
  • Introduction of a chemical hazard not already listed on the current placard (ie; flammable, oxidizer)
  • Use of radioactive material if not already listed
